Finding Presence through Strength and Relaxation

Sometimes yoga can be too ‘yang’ and forced; at other times too ‘yin’ and collapsed; and somewhere in the middle is a land of calm, alive presence.

How can we keep finding more of this balance in our practice?

This weekend will be asana based, with each session working towards periods of relaxation and sitting practice. 


A yoga teacher since 1994, Bill runs weekly classes in south Devon, and weekend workshops and retreats all around the UK.

While inspired by many different yoga and meditation traditions, his main influence has been the teachings of the late Vanda Scaravelli, and he continues to study with Sandra Sabatini, one of her longest standing students. 

Before that he studied for 18 years with Diane Long, trained at length with John Stirk and Sophie Hoare, and is also qualified as a Sivananda Teacher, as a Yoga Therapist (YBT), and as a Core Process Psychotherapist.

Bill holds a warm and enquiring teaching environment that is open to all levels of experience. 


The weekend will initially be offered to those wishing to do both the two days meaning that the second day can be a progression in the subtleties and experience of the practice.  Why not make the weekend a Retreat?  We can advice on local places to stay and eat.  Places will be limited to 24 students.  If these have not filled nearer the time single day places may become available.
